Good Article on the Chechen National Liberation Movement

Clearly most of the nations of the world have a right to self-determination. The article makes clear that the Chechen people never assented to being conquered by the Russians, never really surrendered, and kept fighting periodically every chance they got after conquest in 1864.
Recent polls show that a slim majority of Chechens support full independence. The rest presumably support the largely autonomous government of the Chechen Republic. However, this government is widely considered to be a Russian puppet regime.
Commenter AJ says that the vast majority of Chechens support Russia. This is probably not true. Most of them are probably filled with rage and hatred towards Russia for the genocide the Russians have committed against the Chechen people. However, about half the population probably feels that independence is hopeless and instead opts for the extreme autonomy that has been granted the puppet state.
The war is not exactly winding down in the region. There are military incidents every single day in Chechnya and nearly every day in Ingushetia, Dagestan, Kabardino-Balkaria. The Caucasus region is frankly on fire and the war is probably going to go on definitely.
Frighteningly, there are also now attacks in the Perm region and in Kalmykia deep inside Russia proper. Recently terrorists have carried out attacks against Cossack communities in Russia proper to the north of the Caucasus.
There are a number of theories about why Russia will not let the Chechens go, which would seem to be the only rational thing to do. The article gives the best theory, that independence cannot be allowed because of the precedent it would set in that other regions might want to break away too.
True, much of the Caucasus may indeed break off if self-determination was allowed to Russian republics.
But there are few, if any, other regions in Russia which would break away, so the argument appears to be moot, and Putin increasingly just looks like some kind of a fascist.
There is a fascist-like youth group called “Nashi” that encourages Russians to breed large families for the Fatherland. Pro-natalism is characteristic of all fascist regimes and in general is anathema to all progressive regimes. As a radical environmentalist and zero population growth advocate, I am quite happy that Russia’s population is declining. They serve as a great shining example for all of us.
Fanatical nationalism and extreme racism seem to be overwhelming Russian society lately. Although not particularly racist, commenter AJ is a good example of this fanatical Russian nationalism. If you want to know what these folks are like, read his comments.

Chechclear est l’une des vidéos les plus horribles, disponibles sur le Net. Elle montre l’exécution barbare d’un soldat russe durant la guerre de Tchétchénie.
Les avis sont divergents à propos de cette vidéo.
Les Tchétchènes affirment que c’était un mercenaire et que c’est pour cette raison qu’il a été tué, d’autres versions disent que c’était un soldat appelé. Cela s’est passé soit en 1996 en Tchétchénie ou en 1999 au Daguestan. Tout n’est pas clair concernant cette vidéo. Il s’agit d’un horrible chapitre de plus dans cette guerre en Tchétchénie.
Le fait est que la gorge de l’homme a été tranchée par Khattab, le renommé combattant saoudien, qui s’est battu aux cotés des Tchétchènes jusqu’à ce qu’il soit tué par une lettre empoisonnée.
Ici vous pouvez télécharger la vidéo. Plusieurs personnes m’ont écrit pour m’informer que cette vidéo est vraiment très difficile à trouver. C’est la toute dernière version, qui dure seulement 16 secondes.
Il existe une version plus longue, atroce, non publiée, qui dure cinq minutes. Elle est actuellement impossible à trouver. Dans ces images, les bourreaux battent le soldat et l’humilient durant plusieurs minutes avant de le décapiter.

Decapitato Vivo!! Urla, Uomo, Urla!

I am looking for translators to write this post up in Spanish, Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish. Email me if you are interested.
Hello folks, this is an Italian translation of the Chechclear Video post. My translator, Paolo From Trieste, is a huge horror fan, so I think he actually likes watching this stuff. Regular readers don’t even want to watch chechclear. It’s legendary for being one of the most fucked-up videos that ever appeared on the Internet.
Dopo la decapitazione dei 6 soldati russi in Cecenia (vedi video), dopo la decapitazione dei ‘neri’ da parte dei neo-nazi russi (vedi video), eccovi l’ultima parte della Trilogia del terrore…il video chiamato CHECHCLEAR, uno dei più orrendi ed impressionanti mai apparsi in Rete.
Ne abbiamo già parlato, è un’esecuzione durante la Guerra in Cecenia.
Quando? Nel 1996 o 1999.
Dove? Nella Repubblica del Dagestan.
Gli esecutori? Dei ribelli Ceceni
Il condannato?
Malgrado i Ceceni abbiano confermato che il prigioniero decapitato fosse un Mercenario al soldo del nemico, non ne è mai stata appurata la vera identità.
Qualcuno (e penso siano stati i filo-russi) ha ipotizzato che era un soldato di leva.
Che i Ceceni abbiano più volte espresso il loro odio per i mercenari, è cosa risaputa.
Che non abbiano provato, almeno nelle fasi iniziali della guerra, dei particolari risentimenti (li ammazzavano e basta…) nei confronti dei soldati di leva russi, questo è anche vero.
Nessuno ha mai stata fatto chiarezza sull’episodio.
Alla fine, dobbiamo solo constatare che l’orrore parte da lontano e che la guerra russo/cecena, inclusi gli episodi di terrorismo, è stata una delle pagine più sanguinarie di questi ultimi vent’anni (A dire il vero, anche in Jugoslavia ne hanno combinate di nefandezze…!)
Non desidero farvi vedere il video nel mio sito, scaricatelo qui. Sono 16 secondi, solo 16 secondi di orrore. Molti lettori mi hanno scritto che è praticamente impossible reperire su Internet il filmato. E’ vero.
Questa è l’ultima versione ‘riveduta e corretta’.
Ma, e fate bene attenzione, queste sequenze sono tratte dal FILMATO ORIGINALE della durata di ben 5 minuti!!!
Non riesco ad immaginare cosa possa contenere quel filmato. La depravazione umana, la bestialità dell’atto compiuto visti in questi pochi secondi mi hanno sconvolto…mi vengono i brividi solo a pensare cosa possa contenere un filmato di ben 5 minuti!!
Non crediate di poterlo trovare in rete: è sparito dalla circolazione.
Penso di aver individuato dei siti particolari, protetti, dove poterlo scaricare, ma non è un’operazione facile, ci sono ostacoli di vario tipo.
Ne volete un’anticipazione? Ve la dò, non sono così cattivo da non soddisfare la morbosa e perversa curiosità di alcuni di voi…sono solo 16 secondi: un uomo, di razza slava, un russo probabilmente, è disteso a terra, su un fianco, un anfibio nero gli schiaccia la testa a terra. Ha una collana dorata al collo, non riesco a vedere se ha la piastrina di riconoscimento (Anche i russi ce l’hanno? Penso di sì).
L’uomo è giovane, sulla trentina, è vivo, per adesso…per poco.
Una mano guantata…un coltello…inizia il taglio…urla…urla… il macellaio taglia…urla…gorgoglìo…alla fine…un trofeo??
Allora, volete ancora vederlo??

Chechclear is one of the most horrible videos ever made available on the Web. It involves the execution of a Russian soldier during the Chechen War.
There is a lot of controversy about it.
Chechens say he was a mercenary, and that is why he was killed. It took place in 1996 in Chechnya.
The best information from many former Russian soldiers on forums is that the man executed was a a Russian contract soldier named Alexei Shcherbatykh. He was a contract soldier, not a mercenary, meaning he continued his service after conscription. He was picked up with other soldiers you see in the the video that proceeds Chechclear (see below). They went into town to pick up vodka. It was a bad mistake, as you can see what happened to them.
Some say that the man being beheaded is Yevgeny Rodionov, age 19. However, this is incorrect. Rodionov was captured at age 18 and beheaded at age 19, but his beheading was not captured on film.
Another story from is that it is possible that it is not not Alexei in the video and that the person was not a soldier but a civilian hostage named Yuri who was killed to make a point to the other hostages.
Some think that the man’s throat was cut by Khattab, the famous Saudi jihadi who fought with the Chechens until he was killed by a poison letter.
However, the killer is actually most probably Salautdin Temirbulatov (known as The Tractor Driver), or at the very least, the man was executed by his gang. Photo here. The chechclear execution is one of three carried out that day by Temirbulatov’s men. His men captured the four contract soldiers outside the town of Komsomolskoye on April 12, 1996.
There is videotape of Temirbulatov questioning the four men. He and his men then shot two of them and beheaded the third. There is an old videotape of very poor quality that is very hard to find that shows Temirbulatov questioning the four men. Then he and his accomplices shoot two of men, each in turn; then someone saws the third man’s head off. However, this tape is not a part of chechclear.wmv.
According to Movldy Khasanov, an arrested Chechen rebel and member of the same Temirbulatov gang, the beheader was actually a man named Daddy or Batya in Chechen. He was reportedly killed in a Russian mortar attack one month later. However, Khasanov may be lying to cover up for his boss was arrested for the crime the year before.
Temirbulatov was arrested on March 20, 2000 and charged with this murder and three other murders of Russian contract soldiers. He was indicted on February 15, 2001. One of the videos used to convict him was chechclear. This video was purchased by Russian media in 1999. Channel 2 is the only station that played the media in the full version. They played this video to make Chechens appear to be brutal maniacs and drum up support for the Chechen War.
Temirbulatov was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. There are rumors that he was killed in prison by Russian Orthodox prisoners and that they beheaded him as revenge for his crimes, but there is no confirmation of that.
There is supposedly a much longer, 5-minute, unedited version that is much worse but is almost impossible or impossible to find anymore. In that video, his captors beat and humiliate him for several minutes before they behead him.
Yet another version shows Temirbulatov kneeling on the victim’s back, then beheading him, then holding the severed head up in the air and laughing. This one is also almost impossible to find anymore.
